New high-performance Bluetooth® 5.0 Low Energy module PAN1780

Panasonic Industry Europe introduces the newly developed long range Bluetooth® 5.0 module PAN1780 for IIoT and Smart Home applications

Munich, January 2020: With the new PAN1780 Panasonic Industry Europe launches a new Bluetooth® 5.0 Low Energy module based on the Nordic nRF52840 SoC single-chip controller. An output power of up to +8 dBm and the high sensitivity of the nRF52840 in combination with the LE coded PHY make the module very attractive for applications that require a long range. The Bluetooth® 5.0 features enable a higher symbol rate of 2Mbps using the high-speed LE 2M PHY. Furthermore, the new LE advertising extensions allow for much larger amounts of data to be broadcasted in connectionless scenarios. Besides BLE5.0 with the qualified Bluetooth® mesh profile stack it supports 802.15.4 and NFC-A. With its Cortex™ M4F processor, 256kB RAM and the built-in 1MB flash memory it can easily be used in standalone mode, thereby eliminating the need for an external processor, saving complexity, space and cost. Complementary available is the PAN1780AT, a variant with additional AT Command Set.

With only 15.6mm x 8.7mm x 2.0mm, the compact module features an ARM® TrustZone® Cryptocell 310 security core that supports a secure boot process. Also a temperature sensor was integrated in the PAN1780 module. The operating temperature range is -40°C up to 85°C and the supply voltage ranges from 1.7V up to 5.5V.

Especially IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) applications like devices for smart city infrastructure, industrial mesh networks or robotics within Industry 4.0 environments benefit from the comprehensive features of the PAN1780 module. Also smart health and secure medical peripherals or building automation applications like smart locks or intelligent lighting are suitable areas of use. Thanks to the high performance and the built-in Cryptocell of the PAN1780 Bluetooth® module it is also a fitting solution for edge computing purposes.
